The Wing Nut Tribe Has Issues with Rev. Lowery

January 22, 2009

So the wing nut tribe is in an uproar over Rev. Lowery issuing the following statement in his prayer at the inauguration:

Yes, let’s pretend racism doesn’t exist.  It make bull shit artist such as Glenn ass-hole Beck feel more comfortable.  Too bad, racism is real and it still lives on.  What the Rev. said only offended those that are either lying to themselves (as well as others) or those that live in a bubble.

I should believe that Rev. Lowery saying that when some of the bigoted white people that still are around — ask Palin considering she excite a whole bunch of them during the general election — to get it right is a racist term?  How the hell so?  Lowery is not saying all white people are racist.  He just stated a fact that if nothing else, reminded us that the general election brought that crap right back to the forefront.  I still have clips of some of the ignorant racist shaming our country with their baseless bigotry and total lack of 6 grade intelligence to assimilate fact.

Listening to this shit, it makes me wonder if Glenn Beck would be the first to condone and/or justify the village idiots in LA that were killing and shooting innocent Black people during Katrina with the nonsense that they were protecting their property?

Just how far up in the sky is Glenn Beck’s bubble?  He dared to indicated that Rev. Lowery is an older gentlemen?  The man is not just an older gentlemen, he comes from the long and continued history of blatant racism. 

To top it off that bitch Glen Beck dared to tell President Obama to help us to help you?  Please, you’re the same ass hold that reported this:

WTF?  How utterly phony Glen Beck is with this crap.  Sarah Palin went around spreading divisiveness everywhere the chick went and he dares to object to some one else stating actual fact and then twist it into that person being racist?  Where the hell was his outrage over Bush’s continuous crimes?  I am so sick of these wing nut’s with their bull shit artist always spouting their hypocritical nonsense on a regular basis.  Just who, I really mean who, but the wing nut tribe, inclusive of Glen full-of-shit-Beck, gives a shit what empty headed Barbie has to say about anything?  She’s like T-Rex — EXTINCT, never to rise again.  Of course unless fools like Beck want her to challenge a real person of intelligence in 2012.

Why don’t he, and Pat Buchanan, get a fucking bottle and a room and leave us alone with their sexual repressed love of Sarah don’t-even-have-a-small-clue Palin?

The Road To The Inauguration

January 19, 2009

As I sit here watching a show going back over the campaign trail, the one thing that is stark and can not be missed was the enormous crowds that President Obama easily drew while on the stump.  He was and is a people magnet and the many overwhelming speeches he gave were absolutely stunning.

2008-07-24-crowds obama-oregon4

I can not predict the future, but I do know the past and there is no one that has had the same allure that this one man has captured.  His passion, his desire, his belief in us and our country were transparent and drew us like bees to honey.  He expressed his feelings so eloquently and in that effort he said what we all wanted to hear, an end to divisiveness.  As our problems grew way out of proportion, President Obama started to really embodied what we were sure we needed.  Simply put that was HOPE.

Here we had a candidate, President Obama, that was steady as a rock, confident and just oozing with a calming effect.  Listening to President Obama and seeing him always had a calming effect.  He had the talent to literally chase some of our fears away.  It wasn’t about making him into a God or a spiritual leader.  It was about being utterly tired, 8 years of BS, a jerk of a president, and a Vice President that made people think of Darth Vader.  Then there was McCain.

obama-invesco2 100000 for obama

McCain came on the scene filled with age and selling the same old stale tomatoes, that were so old they looked like rocks.  That part might have been over looked, because at least he had experience.  Although there were moments you didn’t know what McCain’s campaign strategy was since it came across as disjointed, superficial and without a real message.  It all came crashing down though at precisely the same time Sarah Palin was introduced as the possible next Vice President.

Not only did Palin not enhance McCain, her presence only caused a stronger division between the extreme right and the rest of America.  She was touted as being a conservative dream.  That didn’t last long as the intellectual conservatives came out in force and acknowledged, what those who were not conservative saw right away, Palin was too much of a risk; or, a better way of putting it, she was Bush only a female.  It was if the McCain camp thought Obama’s charm came from his inexperience or his youth.  Such was not the case and Palin’s lack of any knowledge was to be the bitter pill McCain would have to swallow.  Accepting Palin as another Bush was something none of us was willing to risk.  The one thing we knew for sure was that Bush was going away and no one would accept a Bush substitute not even in the form of conservative Palin.  None of the dirty tricks or hard campaigning in divisiveness was going to pull this election into the republicans’ corner.

nm4 unfucking believable

The general election was not pretty.  It was filled with a lot of hateful messages and most centered and came from the McCain/Palin camp.  The GOP refused to understand that they were up against the people.  President Obama was our representative and they didn’t stand a chance.  We were way to tired of more of the same.  It didn’t take long before the lack of discipline to start creeping out from the McCain/Palin camp.  Fingers started pointing, accusations were being made, name calling came next, well you know the story.  It just could not be accepted that the simple phrase “Yes We Can,” had won a nation over.

obama-invesco10 smh

And now the moment is upon us and we have made our choice.  Ladies and Gentlemen may I introduce you to our next president, Barack Hussiem Obama.

Nothing to do about nothing

December 31, 2008

This post is only dedicated to my best friend who is leaving me to go overseas and live in London.  I am so happy that his dream is being realized.  I am equally sadden that we will no longer share the dark side, a knowing glance, an informative smile or a burst of trivia song expressing a multitude of meaning.

To my best bud I wish him well and that all that his move can grant him will be reached.  Though I am both sadden and happy I can only say you go dude and knock them dead.  We stay in contact via email and make the best of that.  No it will never replace the spontaneous hugs or glances and smiles but will have to be enough.  Especially until I get up off my butt and go and see him in London.

If ever two people were destined to be soulmates and forever friends that would be me and my very perfect buddy, Michael.

Much love and success to my special friend Michael.

Sign Out Song: I Love Him Like I Do

December 30, 2008

Okay tonight’s selection is me showing my Christian side.  I really loved this song and found it inspirational and uplifting, as well as hot and current with today’s generation.  It is also absent of all hate.  God in this song is just someone that loves us without conditions.  Amazing, we do not have to be racist or bigots to be loved.  That’s a God I can get down with.  I hope you all enjoy it as well.  Good night

Enough said.

60 Minutes — Obama’s Road to the White House

December 29, 2008

Here’s a 60 minutes’ special that came on Sunday night. Its a behind the scene look at President Obama’s road to the white house. This was a very interesting interview and I quite enjoyed it

I did note that President Obama looked a lot younger during the beginning of the interview then he looks now. I’d say the campaign did take it’s toll.

The funniest part is when the reporter mentioned that some Blacks think that President Obama was not black enough. They got that wrong.  No, the problem was some of us thought he was too black and was scared he could never be perceived for who he was. Guess what? The people got it and saw him as a man of the people. Unlike a man of the establishment.

Though my feelings for McCain has reverted back to what they were before the ugliness of the general election, McCain was still a man of the establishment.  I see hope with President Obama being possibly realized and with Joe Biden by his side they will get it done.  Sorry McCain, I like you, but I did not see hope and with Palin beside you I only saw a disaster in the making.

No One Follows the Bible

December 28, 2008

Here’s a little Bible study that is worth listening to. I just love it when I get my dose of scriptures mix in with the comments.  Please know that I find the bulk of them to be false and just another way to spread hate based off of bigoted opinion.

That there are people out there pretending they are living the christian way is what makes the scripture quoting even more comical for me.   If some of those same people were really trying to live a Godly life then what happened to the part where they give up all their worldly goods to follow Jesus?

I’m sure if they looked hard enough they’d find a verse in the Bible where  quoting scripture to get across bigoted ideas is all that there God required.
